APPPA Offers Cash Scholarship for 2013

Posted 9/3/2013 11:23am by Mike Badger.

The American Pastured Poultry Producers Association (APPPA) is offering its third annual Jondle Memorial Scholarship, which includes $500 cash and a two-year membership in APPPA. The scholarship will be awarded to an individual, farm, or organization that can demonstrate an educational need directly related to pastured poultry.

The scholarship may be used for any educational activity related to pastured poultry, such as expenses related to attending conferences and workshops, trainings, youth education, or on-farm trials.  Other ideas that promote pastured poultry will also be considered.

To apply, please send a proposal explaining how you intend to use the scholarship. Include the history of your farm or organization, and be sure to talk about your current pastured poultry operation. Answer the simple question, “How will this scholarship support your pastured poultry educational efforts?”

Applications will be evaluated based upon how well the educational opportunity to be funded by the scholarship enhances the individual‘s/group‘s knowledge and how that knowledge will help promote the pastured poultry industry.

Previous scholarship awards have funded community poultry workshops, enabled individual farmers to attend conferences, and assisted college pasture poultry programs with supplies.

APPPA membership is not required to apply.

Apply no later than November 15th, 2013 by sending your application to: APPPA, PO Box 85, Hughesville, PA 17737. You may also submit your application via email to grit@apppa.org. The scholarship will be awarded on or around December 15, 2013.

As a condition of the scholarship, the  awardee will provide a follow-up report for publication in the APPPA Grit outlining how the educational opportunities furthered their understanding of pastured poultry and how that information is being applied on the farm.

APPPA is a nonprofit educational and networking organization dedicated to encouraging the production, processing, and marketing of poultry raised on pasture. APPPA encourages people to exchange information, techniques, innovations, and advice. To learn more about APPPA, visit www.apppa.org or call Mike Badger, APPPA Director at 888-662-7772.
